Is it just me or has there been some strange things lately.

The most recent posts should have around 5. There's only 2-3 at times.

I can't connect to modsonline one time, the site keeps redirecting and say "site can't be found".

My private message is underlined even though I didn't.

One person spammed my topic one time.

There may be a few more. Just can't remember at the moment.

So is it just me or the site has something wrong. [ohwell]

I have seen the 'recent posts' only showing 2 or 3 at a time, but haven't experienced the other issues.

Thanks for the report, I'll make sure it get looked into. [thumbs_up]

Sam,

I'd love it if you could post examples of the issues you are mentioning here. If I can see the issues I can resolve them

Regarding the down website, we did just make a server move so that issue should not occur anymore. Welshy mentioned something similar to me this week and he hasn't experienced since.

Is this the recent posts page you mean?.. http://modsonline.com/Forums-latest.html

Yeah, I sometimes get the same thing, where the recent forum threads section on the homepage only displays a few threads.

OK.. the limited threads issue. I know the reason and it comes with a story. lol.

When I moved over the new website, I realized that I missed adding the automatic script (cron job) that runs to grab "News from around the web". So I added that a couple days ago which caused a large number of threads to be found.

The script that displays the latest threads is set to skip all forum posts in "news from around web" unless someone posts a comment to that post. The script also only queries for the latest 100 posts. I limit it to 100 because I don't want to lag the site by reading too many of them.

So... of the latest 100 posts, only about 3-4 of them were not "news from around the web" and therefore only 3-4 posts were showing up there.

To help solve the problem, I upped the limit from 100 to 200. Hopefully that helps.

Sorry for the late reply.

Mystic is right, it's the front page. I guess you got it fixed. I don't really understand the backstage of it, but it seems you got it fixed. This isn't a big deal though, just not consistent.


For the redirection/down of the site, I think you are right about the server move. When Welshy mentioned it to you, I think it was the same day it happened because as soon as I gain access to the site, Welshy was on. So I guess he told you then as soon as the site worked. I asked a few other people and they experienced no problem. So I thought it was just me at the time. I don't have the problem anymore now. At the time I thought I was blocked for what I said about the "future games" topic. BTW, you guys haven't responded yet, funny huh. lol


For the private message being underlined, I guess you have to check the message. This occurred today when I replied back to your message. I don't know if you will see my message being underlined but I don't think this is a big issue but just not consistent again.


Other than the above, everything else seems fine. Thanks for fixing the site.

Thanks for adding the picture to your post. That helps me to see what you mean.
Seems the "code" posting is screwing up things a bit. I'll have that fixed in a jiffy.
